Music has always been an integral part of Darren Bailie’s life, growing up with a dj for a father and his family heavily involved in music Darren started playing the drums at a very young age, he has rhythm ingrained into his very D.N.A! At the tender age of 16 Darren first stepped behind a pair of turn tables after being inspired by a scratch DJ at an underground rave, however it was when he first discovered house music shortly after that the passion for DJ’ing really took hold, and he has never looked back! Darren has played to crowds across the globe and is always held in the highest regard for not only his technical skill as a DJ, but also his ability to read a crowd, to be able to take them on a journey as he builds the set and always leave them wanting more! Darren’s mantra has always been that you should “play FOR a crowd and not AT them” and this is what makes him loved the world over! Darren ever imagines himself to be on a dance-floor as one of the clubbers when selecting tracks for his cd wallet.
In the studio Darren is no less impressive, his highest achievement to date is as the creator of the Guru Josh Project and the force behind Guru Josh Project’s No.1 hit Infinity 2008, for which he was presented with an IDMA at the Miami Winter Music Conference! Recently Darren has been working on remix’s for the likes Boy George’s “Amazing Grace”, Tim Berg’s “Bromance” and many more, as well as a number of high profile collaborations and his own solo work!
Since the breakup of the band (Guru Josh Project) Darren rebranded as the Guru Project and has been busy in the studio creating hits under both sudo names “Darren Bailie & Guru Project” his latest release the remake of “I Need a Miracle” shot straight in the top ten of many dj charts around the world, even showed its face in the top 40 Austrian pop charts briefly….. No matter if its Guru Project, Darren Bailie or the now disbanded Guru Josh Project… you know… if Mr bailie is involved its going to be 100% pure perfection…..
